Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia)
by Margaret Crombie
This popular guide has been completely updated while still maintaining the core philosophies for dealing with specific learning difficulties (dyslexia) in the classroom situation.
The book contains a section for the Secondary stage, but is directed mainly at the Primary School stage, adopting a view that if needs are met at this stage, later problems will be minimised.
Designed to help the classroom teacher recognise, accommodate and meet the needs of dyslexic children, the Guide considers the various stages in the assessment process and what the class teacher can do to alleviate childrens’ difficulties in the different areas of the curriculum. There are sections on improving curriculum-supportive skills such as memory and motivation and the use of computers
